Nightshade Ships

SEGA today announced the release of "Nightshade" for the PlayStation 2. The latest chapter in one the long running "Shinobi" series, "Nightshade" promises to deliver more intense gameplay, bigger environments, and sharper visuals than its popular 2002 predecessor, "Shinobi". The developers also promise an easier learning curve and a new 'Easy' mode, making the title more accessible for casual players.

"'Nightshade' represents an innovative leap forward in action-game design, created to become progressively addictive as gamers master the combo-driven play mechanics of the 'Tate' fighting system," said Scott A. Steinberg, vice president of entertainment marketing, SEGA of America, Inc. "The development team at Sega WOW has refined the core elements of the "Shinobi" franchise on PlayStation 2 to create an unbelievably tense and exciting follow-up adventure."

Taking place one year after the events chronicled in "Shinobi", "Nightshade" casts gamers as the female ninja Hibana, who must save the civilians of Tokyo from the fallout of a new rift that has opened between earth and the demon realm. Tension mounts when she realizes that her former mentor is largely responsible for the chaos, and an emotionally charged battle for control of the legendary Akujiki blade ensues. The game is rated "M" for Mature and is available nationwide for $49.95.
